"Until Name Becomes Prayer: A Poetry Slam Event" in Akron
Please note, this event has expired.
This is a GoFundMe fundraising campaign.
William Alfred Nu’utupu Giles is a second generation Samoan Immigrant, Poet, and Arts Educator born in Honolulu, Hawaii. We are raising money to bring Will to Ohio as a part of his poetry tour across the mainland with his NEW chapbook “Until Name Becomes Prayer.”
Until Name Becomes Prayer is a traveling poetry show that pays homage to every indigenous and immigrant mouth that had to become a history book.
Our vision is to have Will perform at Summit Artspace, a sponsor in Akron, Ohio, on the evening of February 26th in collaboration with other local Akron creatives (theater, music, dance). We have 350 seats in the venue, and would love to save one for you. We want the event to be FREE and accessible to the entire community in the Greater Akron area to come listen to Will’s words as well as be immersed in the stories of Akron’s creatives!
On the evening of February 27th, Will is planning to lead writing workshops at Summit Artspace for localView more
